Gunnels for Rowboats
The gunwales on rowboats tend to be heavier-particularly the outer pair- to handle to repeated strain of the oar being drawn through the water and placing considerable force where the rowlock sockets are mounted.
For the Rice Lake and Stony Lake models,the INNER gunwales measure 5/8" x 7/8" x 17 feet and the OUTERS measure 15/16" x 1 1/4" x 17 feet. The wood is white ash and comes to you planed on four faces.
If you are building a Whitehall, the INNER gunwales are 3/4" x 1" x 17' and the OUTER pair measure 7/8" x 1" x 17 feet.
